We stopped here to learn a bit about Cumberland. It was small but very informative. It has a bit of everything for every age. I actually found a display that helped me understand the division of counties through the 1800's . Be sure to go into the grand ballroom! It was well laid out and the volunteer was very knowledgeable would answer questions even though it is a self guided museum. It was sad in some respects to travel through time and see the decline of a beautiful little city. There is no admission fee but there is a free will offering donation box. The museum is on the second floor of the building and has steps and an elevator for access.
Suggest you follow up with walking some of the city area and then driving through the old neighborhoods on the hill near the court house. Beautiful views and amazing architecture .
